Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are encouraging supporters to buy their tickets for Friday’s big Super League derby with Leeds Rhinos (kick-off 8pm) in advance to avoid missing out.

Wildcats are expecting their biggest crowd of the season at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium for the visit of the Super League champions with tickets in high demand this week.

A crowd of 9,547 watched the corresponding fixture last season as Wildcats secured a memorable 38-18 victory but that game was on a Monday night and screened live on Sky.

Friday’s match will not be televised and a bigger crowd is being anticipated for the visit of Brian McDermott’s men.

Wildcats General Manager Davide Longo said: “We’re expecting a huge crowd for the game and we’d just like to reiterate to supporters that buying tickets in advance will not only guarantee that they’ll be at the game, but it will save them money and save on the time spent queuing on matchday for tickets.”

Rhinos supporters traditionally travel in big numbers to Wakefield and are expected to pack the Western Terrace on Friday night.

It will the biggest test so far of the new arrangements put in place by Wakefield to house away supporters in the Western Terrace, and the club is calling on the cooperation of both sets of fans to make the atmosphere an enjoyable one.

“The supporters have been great with the new arrangements put in place since the start of the season and we thank them for that,” Longo continued.

“It will be the biggest away support we’ve had this year so we will need the cooperation of our supporters alongside the matchday security team to ensure that everyone has the best matchday experience possible.

“We’d like to reiterate that the policy is not one of strict segregation, rather areas of the ground where supporters from each team are advised to stand so that they can be with their fellow supporters to enhance the atmosphere and enjoyment for men, women and children.”

The match is not all ticket but supporters are being encouraged to buy in advance to avoid the possibility of missing out and to save money on tickets bought on the turnstiles.

Match tickets can be bought by visiting the ticket office at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium or the club’s retail stores at Trinity Walk or the Ridings Centre.
